Scott Sinclair: Odds-on to join Newcastle this summer

The 24-year-old, who has struggled to make an impact at Manchester City since joining last year, has been subject to a flurry of sudden interest with Sky Bet to move to St James' Park, prompting the Magpies to replace Everton at the head of betting on his next club.

After impressing for Swansea in helping establish them as a Premier League side, Sinclair made just 11 appearances including two starts in his first season at the Etihad Stadium.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "In a market which has previously seen very little money, we have taken a strong run of bets on Sinclair's next club being Newcastle, prompting the price to plummet.

"With nothing apparent in the media domain on such a deal happening, we're assuming the money is coming from those in the know, although it's always difficult to tell during the season of speculation."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
